With great pain and sorrow, Friends of Itamar would like to express our condolences to the Shevach family and the community of Chavat Gilad of Samaria in the tragic loss of Rabbi Raziel Shevach HYD who was ambushed and shot to death on the road right outside his home last night by bloodthirsty terrorists. Rabbi Raziel left a wife and six orphans – may Hashem help ease their pain and bless them! Hamakom Yinachem Otchem Bitoch Shaar Evley Zion and Jerusalem. May Hashem comfort you among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem. Chavat Gilad, was established in the name of Itamar’s resident and founding father – Gilad Zar HYD who was murdered in the same place as Rabbi Raziel HYD 16 years ago.
